Behind the Cold Front
After a stormy Sunday afternoon and Sunday night, a cold front is pushing the active, hot weather out of the region.
Rain ahead of the front is now out of the Finger Lakes, save for a few isolated showers. Those isolated showers will linger for a few more hours before ending. Most areas will probably not see any additional rainfall.
It will take some time for the sun to come out as low clouds erode away. By the afternoon, though, skies should be rather sunny, mixing with some fair weather clouds.
A steady northwest wind will blow with speeds around 10 mph and gusts to 25 mph. This wind will bring in less humid and cooler air. Highs today will mostly be in the upper 70s and low 80s.
Skies will start mostly clear tonight before some clouds move in as low pressure tracks through the Mid-Atlantic. These clouds should linger into the first half of Tuesday, but no rain is expected. Sunshine will increase Tuesday afternoon.
Nighttime temperatures tonight will be much more comfortable, ranging from 55 to 60 degrees. Afternoon highs on Tuesday will warm to the low 80s with low dewpoints around or just under 50 degrees.
Wednesday will follow suit with morning lows starting in the 50s and afternoon highs reaching the low 80s under partly cloudy skies.
Late Week Weather and Beyond
The next chance for rain will come into the area Thursday and Thursday night. This activity will be spurred on by another cold front.
Out ahead of the front on Thursday, southerly flow will bring some warmer, more humid air back into the area. Highs should be limited to the mid 80s thanks to an increase in clouds and the development of some showers and storms. This activity is expected to be hit-or-miss.
If the daytime hours stay dry, warmer temperatures will be possible.
Rain and thunder will increase Thursday night, mostly after midnight. The rain does not look as widespread or heavy as what fell last night, but time will tell how this evolves.
A few showers will probably linger into early Friday before sunshine increases. Temperatures will be reset again, with highs near 80 on Friday and in the upper 70s on Saturday.
A jump back into the 80s is likely on Sunday with dry weather continuing.
As we head into August next week, temperatures look to be on the warm side and rising. There is a chance we will be pushing 90 by the middle or end of next week.
The chances for rain next week look mostly to be isolated afternoon showers and storms.
